Jersey Shore fans know Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his wife, Lauren, want to start a family. Many fans were heartbroken when Lauren announced that she had a miscarriage at the end of last year. But being the Sorrentinos, the couple remain optimistic about starting the next chapter in their lives.
Now, with a new season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation debuting Nov. 19, many fans think the Sorrentinos might share an update regarding their baby situation.
The Situations want to start a family
After Mike was released from his eight-month prison sentence in September 2019, the couple started trying for a baby right away.
“The night he came home we actually conceived,” Lauren shared on GMA. “When I found out we were pregnant, I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and it was our blessing.”
Mike’s prison sentence wasn’t the only hurdle for the couple. Throughout his time on Jersey Shore, “Big Daddy Sitch” was dealing with substance abuse. Thanks to his wife’s support, Mike was able to work through recovery. He will celebrate five years of sobriety in December.
Lauren Sorrentino had a miscarriage in November 2019
About six to seven weeks into her pregnancy, Lauren had a miscarriage. As a role model to many Jersey Shore fans, Lauren felt obligated to share her story.
“It was hard,” she said on GMA. “It was really difficult. I didn’t want to hold this in. I wanted to share it for other people going through it and just be honest so I can kind of heal through the process.”
In discussing her miscarriage, Lauren added that they were still actively trying for a baby. Mike was extremely encouraging.
“I said, ‘Honey, we’ve been through some rough situations in life, prison, addiction,’” Mike told Entertainment Tonight. “‘What did we do?’ And pretty much what we did was we picked ourselves up, we dusted ourselves off, and went right back to the basics.”
“We’re going to keep trying,” Mike added. “We can’t wait until that happens, and we’re very excited to start that chapter, and we’re moving forward.”
Many fans are hopeful that they’ll learn good news about the Sorrentino’s baby situation in the forthcoming season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
